Things i loved this week.

Hey everyone!

I thought yesterday was friday, but quickly realized i was a day behind on my blog. I decided since i was already a day behind i might as well make it two. Normally i schedule these posts but i had a busy week at work, so it just didn't happen.

before i continue, let me just fill you in on the recents. we finished out button tufted ottoman that we made out of a coffee table, i'll post the how to later this week! I got my hair re done yesterday, i started going to a new hairdresser who i'm very happy with but she's on vacation for a month, so i went to the same salon and a different stylist. This was just supposed to be a touch up and my roots, she forewarned me that there were a few copper parts that just didn't take so well but looked like "highlights"(which i found weird because i've been doing this colours for 1 year.. year and a half). I got out of the salon at 6:02 PM and they closed at 6:00PM so i'm fairly certain she just wanted me out, these are random spots she legitimately just missed. i'm so terrible at complaining, i feel bad and i don't want to hurt their feelings. normally in this case i would go to the drugstore and dye my hair black and call it a "new look" but when you pay $130 for your roots and brightening the ends, you don't expect it to look like a raccoon tail.

I guess i'll have to give them a call when they open, wish me luck.. i'll probably straight up vomit as soon as they answer. /firstworldproblems.

now, for the things i loved this week.. i'm just trying to get away from the "house and home" i drool and obsess over so much, mainly because i start following through with these things i love and spend far way too much money re doing the place each year.. but sometimes it just doesn't work out.

side note: I think all of us tattooed artsy girls love nautical themes, i've been looking endlessly for a nautical themed bathing suit, since i can actually wear one comfortably this year, but i can't find a cute one for the life of me. send me some links if you know of any :)

  1. Hi Coley,
    I just became a follower to your blog, it's GREAT!!
    I am a total sucker for not telling the hairdressers that I'm not happy. I once paid $200 to get my locks done and walked out with exactly the same hair colour I went in with......
